The latest from George Lakoff

"Why the messaging of 'Bidenomics' failed:

'It's the freedom, stupid.'

Depending on which news cycle you believe, Donald Trump is either poised to win the 2024 election or doomed to defeat."

New polls show Trump beating President Joe Biden handily in key states. Yet recent election victories for Democratic politicians in Republican-leaning states have restored some hope that not all is lost.

But Democrats should not let a bit of good news lull them into ignoring the dangers of a second Trump presidency. The polls are too close and the threat of a second Trump term remains very real.

Since Trump has made it clear he is willing to dismantle American democracy and rule as an authoritarian, it’s clear that the American people do not fully understand what will be at stake in next year’s elections.

The blame for this appears to be falling largely on the president, who finds himself in the typical Washington trap. Biden believes his accomplishments as president speak for themselves.

So Biden’s campaign thus far appears to rely on lists of accomplishments and something called “Bidenomics,” a clunky term designed to brand the American economy as a direct consequence of Biden’s presidency.

So, why aren’t American voters enthusiastic about Biden’s long list of policy accomplishments and his economic theory?
